Last weekend, the Oklahoma Republican Party(OKGOP) held their biennial convention and election of new leadership. The week began with two candidates for state chair. On Monday night, the last major candidate forum was held by 3 county GOP organizations.
Sitting in the audience was Senator Nathan Dahm. Nathan knew his announcement was going to be made the next morning. But he waited. He listened. He said nothing to the crowd or the audience watching on live social media streams.
Before the week ended, he was the winner of the race, on the 2nd round balloting.
How did that happen?
